After 8 months of going back and forth with our insurance, we finally picked up Grayden's new wheels today! We are so excited!
Austin and I decided last summer that we would start the process of getting Grayden some wheels. After many chats with my great friends who share this journey with me, we decided to go forward sooner than later.
We want Grayden to view the chair as one option or variation for how he can navigate his world. We want him to view it as a positive option that allows him choices. Basically, we just want him to know that no matter how he chooses to get around, that we are completely okay with it. We envision that he may choose to use his wheels for long distances, keeping up with friends, and maybe even sports. Ultimately, Gray will figure it out as he goes with what works best for him.
